Junior Interns with Course Hero’s Knowledge Drive

11.25.2013

HIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 25, 2013 – High Point University junior Bradley Riley’s entrepreneurial spirit helped him contribute to an effort that donated 100,000 books to people in West Africa. It was all through his internship with Course Hero.

Riley was honored as a “Success Story of the Week” through the company’s charity, which provides books to people in Gambia as they collect class notes from colleges and universities around the world. On their Facebook page, the company credited Riley’s “amazing networking skills” with helping them reach their goal of 100,000 donated books.

“Most people focused their efforts on getting notes at their own universities, but I remembered my entrepreneurship classes that taught us to differentiate ourselves and stand out,” explains Riley, a business administration major. “Instead, I contacted a friend at MIT and he started promoting the philanthropy on his campus. Then, I spoke to a friend overseas and the project just grew.”

Riley collected more than 1,800 documents, donating more than 175 textbooks.
